February 20: Asahidake Power Trip

I always thought that there could never be enough powder. That was until February 20, 2013.  It wasn literally chest deep.  At -18 without the windchill the snow was very slow moving. The best position to be in on this day was the back of the pack.  The only way to get down the mountain was to use everyone else's tracks and no matter how many people went first, they still couldn't pack donw the over 1 meter of fresh snow.
